Serge V says:
1992/2009 'Sherry Edition 2 - Fino'
(46%, OB, Fino sherry cask finish,
Matured for 15 years in American oak,
then for 2 years in fino. Colour:
pale gold. Nose: starts on pleasant
notes of walnuts and a mild vinosity,
then a little leather, candy sugar,
orange cake and herbal tea (rather
hawthorn). Mildly grassy. Lovage,
hints of soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
Some marzipan. Mouth: creamy and oily,
half sweet, half grassy. Cane sugar,
tobacco, walnut cake and gingerbread
(or even speculoos). Notes of crystallised
oranges. Finish: long, more on pepper
and oranges. Comments: works well.
I’ve always been a fan of fino
maturing and fino finishing seems
to work quite well too. SGP:352
